Sexual Assault On College Campuses

Traditionally, sexual assault involving students on college campuses were assigned to student-run honor systems which even many students viewed as ineffective and unfair. Indeed, schools around the country have been accused of questionable practices when it comes to prosecuting sexual misconduct. Will the updated Violence Against Women Act solve this problem? We look into that and into the complicated intersection of school, crime and justice when Charlotte Talks.
